Can I ask you all something about gout medication? What I am trying to establish, is whether colchicine is a good medication for gout or not. Are there gout sufferers who have been prescribed this, and if there are can you please elaborate your experiences with colchicine? Hoping for some replies!

Hi! I can tell you that colchicine can be an excellent drug for gout, in the sense that colchicine can drastically reduce the nasty symtoms gout tends to cause. However, colchicine does not reduce uric acid levels. This is crucial in actually eradicating gout. So I can tell you that while colchicine can be helpful, it does not solve long term gout problems.
